Cannot Start the exe

Post by SiMpLeToNiUm »

I'm sorry if this sounds like a very stupid problem, but I'm certain I've followed all of the instructions and that I meet all the software and hardware pre-reqs. All I did was go to sourceforge and grab the latest stable build Win x64(2.1.0 - RC 1.5) and extract it to a separate directory called EDGE. I put my IWADS in there and tried several different methods of running the exe: command line, drag and drop, double-click, etc. The exe loads up a command window and then blinks away again. Am I missing something extremely obvious?

Sorry for the late response. Edge is in a highly transitional state at the moment, and there have been some major life changes for the main dev. involving careers and such. The exe. itself is admittedly a little touchy, so it's hard for a non technical person such as myself to address these kind of issues. That said:

The biggest problem most users have are due to not having the latest MS runtime environments set up. Are you up to date?
